president, right? but if you read the huffington post, you'd think i was, you know, some right wing tool of, you know, wall street, right? both things can't be true, but i think that what has to do with is the sense of, you know, we take, you know, we have a position and we can't compromise on it. and so one of the challenges -- challenges of this generation is, i think, to understand that the nature of our democracy and the nature of our politics is to marry principle to a political process that means you don't get 100% of what you want. you don't get it if you're the majority, you don't get it if you're in the minority, and you can -- you can be honorable in politics, understanding that you're not going to get 100% of what you want. and that's been our history. you think about -- you think about our greatest presidents, and the abraham lincoln, here's a guy who didn't believe in slavery, but his first priority was keeping the union. i have the emancipation proclamation hanging up in my office, and if you read through it, turns out that most of it -- a guy who didn't believe in sla

huffington opposed. in the middle east, we saw how citizen journalists are reporting on the uprisings, and in papers like the "san francisco chronicle" are finding ways to collaborate with groups like spj's journalist of the year in northern california. his last three of this year's winners were new or nonprofit media, a ratio that would have been unthinkable just a decade ago when newspapers and large tv stations dominated the news media. to be sure, most of the hard work is still ahead of us. few new start-ups turn a profit. many community newsrooms' still rely on volunteer labor, and broader economic issues. we want to encourage the members of our audience here at the public library to drive this discussion. this is your chance to ask these experts what is happening to the news that you depend on to make your day to day decisions. our conversation tonight will include five elements -- we will talk about the quality of reporting available to the public and move on to what is being done to create sustainable newsroom jobs. we will talk about creating a new system that enjoys constitu

spending reform. >> well, according to the huffington post, stan stein, congressman walsh wrote the department of agriculture asking for $798,000 for contributions for the american foundation in niguragua. sounds like a good use of money, but that's the point. a lot of so-called wasteful spending doesn't look wasteful when spent on your priorities. republican lawmakers have pressed for tens of millions of dollars to help their districts. they don't want government in the abstract and are happy to rail against it when the cameras are on, but more than happy to get theirs when the camera is off. joining me now, washington bureau chief, ryan grim, how are you doing? >> pretty good, how are you doing? >> i wonder how much this hurts when this hypocrisy stands forward. does it leave a mark on capitol hill? >> it certainly hurts the tea party broadly, but it's not going to hurt these particular members. they didn't do it to benefit themselves personally, they did it because they thought it was smart politics back at home. you go to congress, get federal money for your district, for projec

according to the huffington post, which made that decision based on several factors. for one, it cited that students can still call the quad the lawn, and many frat and sorority houses are on rugby road. it also says the definition of preppiness has changed from upper class folks on the east coast who attend exclusive private schools to a loose term referring to folks who play lacrosse and wear boat shoes and polos. >> that's a loose definition, i guess. >>> this morning first lady michelle obama is getting a little flack online for a choice that she made for lunch this week. she stopped by the shake shack in dupont circle yesterday. "the washington post" reports she got a shack burger, fries, a diet coke, and topped it all off with a chocolate shake. yes, the meal totalled 1,700 calories. the lunchtime feast came right after the first lady attended a let's move event at the white house, which targets childhood obesity. mrs. obama has said in the past that it is okay to indulge every once in a while as long as it's in moderation. and that's true.
